If you watch Poch’s press conference I think that his thinly veiled diatribe is highly revealing.

He is happy to acknowledge that the current project has been successfully concluded, however he is at pains to point out that Spurs are now a ‘big club’ and that the quality of the stadium and training ground demand that the club start to think and act in a way befitting of the stature they have created for themselves. Very hard to disagree with that assessment.

So the question now is this. The chronic under-investment in the squad, as exemplified by the recent on-field implosion, is all too painfully evident.

The lack of competition for places has bred complacency and I absolutely concur that this team has gone as far as it is going to go in terms of ‘achievement’, with its current personnel. It needs radical surgery, which is going to cost money, a lot of money.

How much is Levy and more importantly Lewis willing to back Poch to achieve his vision of the future?

Re-investing the money from the almost inevitable sale of Christian Eriksen and more regrettably Toby Aldeweireld, is not going to cut it. Even if that generated 100,000 million pounds plus, as it would, it needs another 150,000 million on top of that to really shape a dynamic, and revitalised new squad for the future.

Four world class young players, in positions of need, would send out a huge message to our rivals, would back Poch to the hilt and would totally energise the fan base and build on the positivity and good will created by the new stadium.

That is what should happen. Will it? I highly doubt it. My gut feeling is that Lewis and Levy will try and do just enough to keep Poch on board, maintain our Champions League status and spend as little as possible above the monies garnered from player sales to do that.

It is a business model which in its essence prioritises return on investment over winning and highly regrettably I don’t see it changing.

    Given that we will be losing 3 CL grade players we need a bare minimum of 4 top class player. Of course what we will get is a summer of names such as Maddison, Grealish and Bowden and Poch will have to convert Foyth into a defensive midfielder and champion it like a new signing.

    • IsGascoignegonnahaveacrac April 10, 2019 at 10:36 pm

      I’d settle for….McGinn, Lozano, Sandro Tonali, Akanji, Skov, Wan Bissaka, Milan Skriniar…..

      That’s what a big club would do…as Poch says that’s how we have to think now.

      So many Levy Bon Mots and a Mea Culpa of his ineptitude:
      “With the economic climate as it was, pre-Brexit, no construction company would commit to a fixed price for the stadium build,”
      &
      “Anyone who has had anything to do with construction knows that things are always late finishing and always cost more and that’s exactly what we’ve experienced”

      • MitchellThomas April 11, 2019 at 5:49 am

        Yet more:
        “You simply cannot be a big club with a 36,000-seater stadium.”
        There you have it, encapsulating everything about Levy’s belief system. A big club generates a large bottom line. Nothing about glory, trophies, winning.

        Haha!

        Cheap.

  • VincentianMagic April 10, 2019 at 2:54 pm

    I fully agree; the painful thing is that all of the above are things every man, woman, cat and dog have known for the past few years.

    The stadium is great and the training facilities first-class (albeit I’m yet to see any evidence of the greatness of youth being introduced any time soon).

    However, as we all know, the best method of raking in the cash, raising the club profile, getting the very best sponsorship, attracting quality players and new fans, is of course to win things. The hollow ring of ‘we qualified for the CL again’ isn’t exciting and it will only keep the likes of Kane around for so long. Indeed, it appears Eriksen, Toby and probably Verts have now seen enough.

    Amid all the back-slapping going on at the club, we all are acutely aware that we have a squad that is creaking, some unhappy players, a manager who has looked rather resigned in recent times, and a stadium that is, what, double the initial cost? At the moment the football philosophy has more holes in it than the stuff being sold in the Cheese room. Levy/Enic need to stop stinking out the place and refocus on the priorities.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s great that we finally have a world class stadium. It’s just that like many of you, I have the sneeking suspicion that it may come at the cost of team progression. I really hope not.

    On a positive note; I hope we stuff palace tonight, and with Huddersfield in town next, we might be able to put a few points between us and the pack. If we can finish top four, retain most of our best players, reinvigorate Poch’s enthusiasm and actually invest in 3-4 quality players we may just start moving in the right direction again.

  • Rob v April 10, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    I’d say at least 4 world class players. The positions of need were there last summer and they’ve only increased in number this year. In an ideal world we need a new goalkeeper, Toby replacement-if/when he leaves, right back, left back, two centre midfielders, Erickson replacement and upgrades on all of Lamela, Moura and Llorente.

    Reality: Grealish, Mitrovic and a 22 year old ligue 1 winger (insert any name) with 2 assists and 1 goal to his name this season

  • Andrew April 10, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    We should have had at least one top player over two transfer windows. I still don’t understand how wolves seem to have signed some exciting young players and Mouthinio,a very experienced midfielder.
    What do our coaches do?. I still think we will miss out on top four,we need to win tonight,draw is no good.

    • Only Me again April 10, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    Favourite has to be the last stat…I imagine there are more plastic straws than there will be trophies any day soon.
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/47800348

  • Only Me again April 10, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    Personal view, assuming we could keep who we wanted, I would say:
    GK – Lloris is shot, gazzinga is not the answer. – new keeper £30m?
    CB – Toby and jan with Foyth, Sanchez, davies and Dier is good enough
    Full backs – 4 needed, at least 2 starters. Cost would be close £80m
    Central mid – Dier and Winks ok for cover, Eriksen is hot and cold. We need 3 players here – cost £200m (at least)
    Attacking team – Alli ok, Son is great, Kane is well…Kane. We need cover for Kane, another wing forward style player too – cost £100m

    So assuming we lose no-one we want to keep we need to be spending £400m ish. Then hoping “youth” can fill the reserve or 3rd reserve spots.

    We are likely to lose Toby, Christian and Jan (if not this summer then next) we would need at least £175-200m just to stand still. So add that to the £400m above and we are talking about an amount that makes the stadium look cheap. 2 yrs ago we only needed to spend what we usually spend but on 1 or 2 players, now we are talking about a full rebuild and this all assumes the teams around us stand still.

    • IsGascoignegonnahaveacrac April 10, 2019 at 2:05 pm

      It points to one thing……bye bye Kane.

      • Only Me again April 10, 2019 at 8:25 pm

        Would you blame Kane if he looked at the situation and decided its best for him to leave? I wouldn’t personally. I would even understand him choosing City.

        • IsGascoignegonnahaveacrac April 10, 2019 at 8:25 pm

          I say leave. He will go.

        • eddie April 10, 2019 at 9:04 pm

          Interesting you mention City.Pep could release Aguero on a high after winning the league and they take Harry.Gabriel Jesus is not their answer.

          • Only Me again April 10, 2019 at 9:30 pm

            In that City team he would get 50 goals a year.

            • IsGascoignegonnahaveacrac April 11, 2019 at 12:35 am

              If Sterling gets 20 nearly plus the 10 open goals he misses a season Kane will probably get 100.

      • Only Me again April 10, 2019 at 8:25 pm

        Am I wrong? He would probably read it and go “£200m for a midfield…I can do it for £20m”

    GK – Lloris is shot, gazzinga is not the answer. – new keeper £30m?
    CB – Toby and jan with Foyth, Sanchez, davies and Dier is good enough
    Full backs – 4 needed, at least 2 starters. Cost would be close £80m
    Central mid – Dier and Winks ok for cover, Eriksen is hot and cold. We need 3 players here – cost £200m (at least)
    Attacking team – Alli ok, Son is great, Kane is well…Kane. We need cover for Kane, another wing forward style player too – cost £100m

    So assuming we lose no-one we want to keep we need to be spending £400m ish. Then hoping “youth” can fill the reserve or 3rd reserve spots.

    We are likely to lose Toby, Christian and Jan (if not this summer then next) we would need at least £175-200m just to stand still. So add that to the £400m above and we are talking about an amount that makes the stadium look cheap. 2 yrs ago we only needed to spend what we usually spend but on 1 or 2 players, now we are talking about a full rebuild and this all assumes the teams around us stand still.

      It points to one thing……bye bye Kane.

        Would you blame Kane if he looked at the situation and decided its best for him to leave? I wouldn’t personally. I would even understand him choosing City.

        • IsGascoignegonnahaveacrac April 3, 2019 at 3:52 pm

          I say leave. He will go.

          Interesting you mention City.Pep could release Aguero on a high after winning the league and they take Harry.Gabriel Jesus is not their answer.

            In that City team he would get 50 goals a year.

            • IsGascoignegonnahaveacrac April 3, 2019 at 4:28 pm

              If Sterling gets 20 nearly plus the 10 open goals he misses a season Kane will probably get 100.

                You’re being racist hehehe.

                  Haaaa!

      If Levy was to read what you wrote he would shit himself.

      • Only Me again April 3, 2019 at 3:47 pm

        Am I wrong? He would probably read it and go “£200m for a midfield…I can do it for £20m”

        • eddie April 3, 2019 at 3:55 pm

          Sadly for us that is so true and Poch knows it.

    • Billy the yid April 3, 2019 at 3:53 pm

      That seems to be the business plan tho, hope that everyone else stands still
